Harder to excuse, but the same people and same politics are involved with Nerfie.

Supposedly it's not actually changed "toy safety laws", but moreso Hasbro Legal just having gotten even more conservative about what they consider safe-to-go than they were two years ago.

He's listed for $19.99, so I would guess he's a repaint of Power Bots Cyber Speed Bumblebee. Not the Deluxe.
Yeah, i know, just why use the name Roadbuster? If it doesn't look like G1 roadbuster, someone will complain/moan/whatever, and if it does, then what's teh point of the universe one?

Oh F***! DX would have beens so much better.

Why "Nightwatch Optimus Prime"?

Hell, the Animated Role Play weapon is called "Optimus Prime Battle Blaster". Does anyone complain because it doesn't look like G1 Blaster?

So, what's the difference between this new DX Starscream coming out and the Classics Deluxe Starscream we already have? Mold and color-wise I mean.

Dammit, there's so many that I want. Cheetor... Warpath... Cosmos... galvatron... Acid Storm... Skywarp... DINOBOT... Cyclonus... Hound... Ravage... I mean, now I see the point of the Classics line.

Nerf Megatron got into political problems? These guys got issues. I mean, can't they see kids won't be turned into psychopaths by these toy guns? Except for me, of course...

Seems unlikely that they would rerelease Classics Starscream again, since they seem to be avoiding doing that for the other figures, but I suppose that's possible.

I will always have that reaction, and if I ever get a gun, my first target will be Wheelie.

I sincerely hope this is not a repaint of Leobreaker, but sadly if it is, I'll still be sucker enough to buy it out of love to the character they are homaging. Yeah, I know thats sad innit?

Does anyone remember Leobreaker's price? Because this is $19,96, so if Leobreaker's price was the same or close to this, it might be a Leobreaker repaint. Or it just could be a Voyager.

Oh! Don't be silly! The internet is for emoting, not for fact-checking!

I meant that it could just be a Voyager. I hate making typos.

Targeting a fictional character? Nice.

That's what i use my Optimus Prime Battle Rig Blaster on. $20 seemed like a good idea at the time.

The one upside is that it can store 9 cassettes and they won't fall out.
